if i'm on the board and part owner of a company but working for another company can i draw unemployment from that second company

I'm part owner of a small company.The company work has gone but i'm still on the board but working for another company. Can i now draw unemployment from this company if i get laid off in six months.

I would think so, as long as sitting on the "board" doesn't disqualify or cancel out the benefits "earnings" or raise an able & available or actively seeking full-time work issue.

When someone is a part owner or "self-employed" and they try to collect on that work .. whether they can collect or not does become an issue and it is state specific as to whether it possible or not.

At least according to the "coverage" pdf at the USDOL
